okay so this is not a trick and it is not about free shipping.. Actually it cost more..

I ordered a TV on flipkart.. I selected exchange OTHER for 500 discount.. 100rs shipping so rs400 discount..

I had the original box and monitor was in good shape although with problems.. My main reason was to get rid of electronic waste.. As I was also using bank discount so I missed out on the extra rs50 off so my entire discount was rs350 on the offer.. After I did the payment on flipkart I got the idea maybe I should give it to the building to use with the security monitor etc.. But I was under pressure and did not even think about all that. The spouse was yelling at me to get rid of it for years and was using it to watch news with the cable box until I got pissed off at the cable company and stopped both cable and internet with them and since then its been wasting space and sitting around the last 4 years or so. Have not watched TV for 20 years and even before that it was just to watch MTV in the back ground..

So the delivery guy comes and wants a TV and I give him the box which clearly says on it 22inch LCD monitor.. It was a FHD monitor I was using with my desktop for years before.. He asked for remote and I was like there is no remote for a monitor..

Well 3 weeks later I get a call from flipkart saying I sent them a monitor and they will be sending it back.. I was like ok.. What else could I do?? I could argue I did not select a TV to return but OTHER.. Since I never thought about a TV/Monitor before this I was more like I did not know what to say.. I was expecting them to sell the stuff for parts and such.. Because the parts are worth a few thousand.. And there are places that do just that..

The same delivery guy shows up and demands rs500 now.. It was rs400 originally but they added rs100 for shipping it back.. There was some yelling and screaming and I ended up paying him rs500.. So losing rs150 in the deal.. It did not occur to me they would not exchange it for a TV for 1, a monitor uses an A+ screen while a TV uses an A or B type screen and if the LCD panel is the most valuable part of it and even the power cord costs rs200. I mean what do you expect for rs400 or rs500 ???

I saw some posts about using tricks with amazon and flipkart etc and just want to warn people that they are becoming very strict and would cause a lot of grief.. They can easily track you down.. Not only that but you end up having trouble with your accounts in the future as they all exchange info between themselves.. I can only talk about myself as an individual where at conferences and chat rooms we would talk about incidents and what was happening etc and point out to others tricks and gimmicks used etc in my field..

So now I am stuck with an electronic stuff that I cant get rid off.. and out of pocket rs150.. So I dismantled it and made a picture frame from the tubelight.. Here is a picture.. Its a back light I can attack to a tube light starter and light up but I will just use it as a regular picture frame.. The LCD panel seems to be good but not sure I can use it for anything.. The signal converter has some lose connections or something since the screen blanks after a while and so I can not give it to someone else.. The quality of the parts inside seems very good.. So the power supply and stuff can be used for other things.. Now to pulverize the plastic case and box etc and throw it in the trash..

What to do with something you cant get rid off??? This is TRUE e-waste and needs to be disposed off properly.. You can be fined a lot in any western country in the thousand’s of $$$’s..

No one thinks before doing something.. But we should.. In my haste to get rid of something and annoying yelling get rid of it etc I thought I was making something out of it like the rs350 I could save in the deal.. I did not even need a TV/Monitor.. Since I already have 2 more sitting around..

smart of you!!!

But do you know the theory of unintended consequences? Sometimes even if its not the very same thing, its might be related and result in the same outcomes. usually when you don’t care you don’t leave a note about it. Other than for you to show others how you know better.

Sorry but I don’t even know who they are and it is too late now anyway.. But I will keep it in mind, we have some major problems with ewaste and such here.. But I would be careful with etailers thinking they wont bother or wont waste their time etc.. If they come back after you, you end up losing more than otherwise.. No matter how small the amount etc..

I am happy you got to pay 150 from pocket. Better sell to kabaadi wala/ recycler next time if you are so wary of getting rid of ewaste.
Trick of writing diff title to make people read shows how you apply act over smartness in day to day life.

And writing a post for rs.150 shows you have no life at all.

People like you missuse everything and have shame to complain also.

Best of luck for life!

Why some people got offended by a post? He just shared his own experience regarding ewaste. Nd yeah title is misleading. It’s a ninja technic to draw dimers’ attention. stuck_out_tongue
